drank Golden Honey Dew by Lupicia
7440 tasting notes

NOMs. i needed something lighter than the other teas i’ve been having. Funnily enough, most of the teas today have been “heavier” imo. So i pulled this one out for dinner. I’ll be sad when this one is gone from my cupboard, but i’m almost ready to take a break from it for a while until my tastebuds have a chance to forget it’s deliciousness. :)

Final Count: 121

I sniffed this tea at MissB’s. SO DIVINE, and I don’t even really like honeydew.

OMGsrsly

(PS at least you didn’t quite typo “abreast”.)

Sil

Shush I see no typo

OMGsrsly

Sneaky sneaky.

Fjellrev

I’ve been hoarding mine, ugh.

Sil

haha i stopped hoarding it when lupicia kept it around and it didn’t go away as a limited tea again.

I feel like the rest of you got a different tea that i did. this is the second time i’ve had it, and the second time i’ve let the sink finish it. I can see the coconut in the blend and there was a single chunk of banana. but brewed, this is just honeybush..with a dash of coconut..leading to a giant pile of ICK for me. Great that it was a free sample in my package to offset a lighter weighted tea…but i’d rather have the other tea. blech.

this will forever be referred to as banana upsidedown coconut barf monster just for omgsrsly Sorry Liberteas! i’m glad it’s working for other folks haha. Can’t win them all.

OMGsrsly

Hahaha. OMG Sil.

OMGsrsly

I have to try the strawberry whatever it is honeybush now…

Sil

just for you gorgeous….just for you. :)

Sil

i liked the white choc one..so either i got awonky bag, or i just need strong flavours with honeybush heh

OMGsrsly

The strawberry SMELLS LIKE STRAWBERRY. So I don’t think you’ll have problems with that one. I am, however, someone who will drink plain rooibos or plain decent honeybush (HB that doesn’t go sour…) so ymmv.

Sil

I like honeybush and rooibos plain sometimes…just depends on the type.

OMGsrsly

Hmm. Next time I go to my parents I’m stealing some of their plain rooibos for you. :D

drank Cocteau by August Uncommon Tea

Vanilla. Grapefruit….mint? I had to try this one when i saw it because it’s not a typical pairing, at least as far as i’ve tried. Mint and grapefruit. weird. this is peppermint. and grapefruit. and somehow works. I think the mint could be dialled back just a teeeeeny bit, but on the whole i like how the mint and the tartness work together. I’m not sure this feels like ethereal noise pop? (whatever that is..) but i do like this blend.

Roswell Strange

I ordered this for the same reasons you did; glad to hear that you liked it for the most part.

Sil

yeah. I couldn’t drink it every day but enjoyed it :)

Alyssa

Sounds like it would make a nice refreshing summer iced tea or cold brew with the grapefruit/mint.

drank Biarritz by August Uncommon Tea

This was a tea from August Uncommon that i wasn’t certain about. I don’t mind anise, but i don’t LOVE it – it always depends on how it’s used. Everything else about this tea was something i thought i’d like. Once brewed, this IS a delicious tea, though i’d probably subtract the anise. It’s not overpowering and doesn’t have that sickeningly sweet taste to the brew, but it’s there enough that it takes away a little from the amaretto and orange. I do like the rooibos used in this blend – it’s not that harsh woody rooibos that i really don’t like. overall, another good blend from AU, though i’d love it more sans anise. :)

review from NEW 52 teas.

I am a fan of this one. It won’t top my list of mint chocolate teas ever, but it’s a good one. What is particularly appealing to me is the use of spearmint. There never seems to be enough mint chocolate spearmint teas. this is like winter to me..that sensation when you brush your teeth and then suck cold air in to your mouth… only not as intense because of the white chocolate which smooths things out a little. Yep. I’ll enjoy my little sampler or this one.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
